Consider Your Cabinets.The first thing you should do when deciding to paint your kitchen cabinets is to consider what type of material your cabinets are made from. Do you have solid wood cabinets or are they composed of wood veneer over particle board? Are your cabinets made from MDF or laminate? Each of these materials will have a bearing on which type of paint you use for your cabinets.
Tools and Supplies You Will Need:Interior acrylic-latex paint,Primer,2 1/2-inch paintbrush,Roller frame and roller cover,Paint tray and liner,Canvas drop cloth,Masking film,Painters tape,TSP-3 sodium phosphate,Random orbital sander and sandpaper of varying grits,Dust mask or respirator,Tack cloth,Shop vacuum,Soft, clean cotton rags
Wood Veneer Cabinets:If your cabinets have a wood veneer—essentially a very thin layer of real hardwood over a pressed material—you will also need to sand before painting your kitchen cabinets. But before you break out the sandpaper or paint, carefully inspect the veneer for loose edges, chips, or cracks. Repair these first with wood glue before sanding the veneered surface.
3. Paint may change it all. With a few coats on the cabinets and walls, the color, the mood and the style of your kitchen can change radically.
I've done things in all my kitchens which have been brought in for a good price but still have improved my kitchens. I've even built cabinets, they are not the science of the rockets, they're wooden or MDF cabinet boxes with doors.
